God

God is the Creator of the universe and the source of Knowledge in all sentient beings.

"God is the experience of total relationship." [1]

"God permeates all things, lives within all things and yet is beyond all things—all at the same time." [2]

God "is the Source and Author of your life and of all life within this world and throughout the Greater Community of worlds in which you live." [2]

“God is so close to you that you cannot even turn around. God is so big and so magnificent that if you had only one leg and one arm and God, you would do well.” [3]

"What is God? It could be said that God is the sum of all relationships. God is the consummation of all relationships." [4]

Rays

The Presence of God

“God is here. Yet no one can be still. Relationship is here. Yet no one can feel it. Your Teachers are with you, but your eyes are moving too fast.” [5]

"The experience of God directly is the experience of all relationships at once."[6]

“The Presence of God is first experienced as emptiness because it lacks movement, and then within this emptiness, you begin to feel the Presence that permeates all things and that gives all meaning in life.” [7]

“God’s Presence is permanent. The world itself is temporary. The physical universe is temporary. God’s Presence is permanent. Can you then see what is great and what is small? Can you then see that which gives and that which must learn to receive? Can you then realize the importance of your preparation? Can you then realize the importance of your service in the world?” [8]

The Nature of God

Enter the New Message through God

"Knowledge is God in you. God is Knowledge in the universe."[9]

“As Knowledge is the Mind behind your mind, so there is a Mind behind your Knowledge, and this Mind is God.” [10]

"God is not a person or a personage or a personality or a singular awareness. To think like this is to underestimate the Creator and to overestimate yourself." [11]

God's Plan to end separation

“The Creator uses everything for a greater purpose. The Creator does not come in and destroy the wicked and take control of everyone and everything and force a unity that people would resist and could not choose for themselves. Instead, everything is set in motion for redemption, for reunion, for contribution, for empowerment, for forgiveness, for true recognition.” [12]

The will of God

“People are very adamant that God should come and make the world exactly the way they want it, but God has other plans. God’s intention is to free everyone here so that they may return to their Ancient Home. So instead of making the world a perfect place for your separation to exist, God has set in motion the forces to break your separation down. Very loving this is.” [13]

"God must enter a world where God is not welcome, in ways that do not generate fear and panic amongst those who believe the world is their only reality. It is for this reason that the Will of God manifests itself in subtle and ingenious ways in this world."[14]

God's Purpose

“God’s Purpose here is to unburden you and prepare you for true relationship, because you will not be able to do anything in life without true relationship.” [15]

“God has a Mind, a Will and a Purpose. In its totality, this is incomprehensible to you now, for you cannot stand apart from this Mind, this Will and this Purpose and be able to discern their meaning. You can only join with them, and the extent to which you can join with them will be the extent to which you will experience their reality, their value and their immediate necessity in your life.” [16]

"What gives your Being purpose, meaning and direction is its service to God. And what gives God purpose, meaning and direction is God’s expression through all things that can express God." [17]

The omniscience of God

"There is nothing in the universe that God is not aware of." [18]

“God knows what humanity needs even though humanity remains confused. God knows what is coming for the human family even though the human family is obsessed with its past. God knows that humanity must unite in the face of great danger even though people continue their conflicts and continue their admonitions against one another. What God knows and what people believe are not the same.” [19]

intensity

The wrath of God

"God is not capable of anger." [20]

"God has no wrath." [21]

The absence of the Presence of God

“Your disassociation from yourself, from others and from God is primarily an issue of competition for power.” [16]

The calling of God

"We have spoken of God as a great attraction, as a force pulling and drawing people. That is a good analogy because it allows God to be as great and as mysterious as God is. That is to acknowledge that God in the world is a force in motion. It is here to do something. It moves people to go along at Its pace. It ignites people, sets people in motion and cares for people." [22]

"If God speaks again, who can respond? If God shows things that have never been shown before, who is willing to see this? If God defies religious belief and expectations, who has the courage and the humility to be prepared to receive this? If God calls you to a higher service and position in life, who is willing to undergo this process of change, a process they cannot control and cannot even really understand? Who is willing and able to do this?" [23]

The Greater Community

God and creation: god of all worlds

"To understand God’s work in the world, you must understand God’s work in the entire universe." [24]

"You must think of God now in the Greater Community - not a human God, not a God of your written history, not a God of your trials and tribulations, but a God for all time, for all races, for all dimensions, for those who are primitve and for those who are advanced, for those who think like you and for those who think so differently, for those who believe and for those for whom belief is inexplicable. This is God in the Greater Community. And this is where you must begin." [1]

"You are no longer dealing with a local god, a local deity, a god of the hill and the tree, a god of the ocean and the river. You are not even dealing with the god of one world and one people, as you are accustomed to think. Now you are dealing with a God of all the universes and Creation beyond the universes, a God so great that your mind can only fall down in praise. Not a human God. Not a God that you create in your own imagination, but a God that you must experience at a deeper level, beneath and beyond the limits of your surface mind. For you to comprehend the God of the Greater Community, then you must comprehend the Voice of the Revelation." [25]

"God is too big to be concerned with this one world. God is not a human being. God is not limited by human understanding, human psychology or human emotions."[24]

"In the Universe, there are trillions and trillions of races. No one Redeemer can speak to them all. No one religion could speak to them all, obviously."[26]

God and creation: Earth and its inhabitants

"God is moving humanity in a new direction. It is time to prepare, to receive and to support the Revelation. People will complain. They will protest. They will resist. They will accuse the Messenger. They will denounce the Revelation. Unable to respond, unwilling to reconsider their life and their ideas, they will resist. This always happens at the time of Revelation. Those who have the greatest investment in the past will resist the new world and everything in it. They cannot see. They will not know. They do not have the courage to reconsider their position. They do not have the humility to stand in the face of the Revelation. What can God do for them? They asked so much from the Creator, but they cannot respond to the Creator’s response. What can God do for them? Be amongst the first to respond so that your greater gifts in life may be established and have an opportunity to come forth in the days and the years of your life. This is the power of Revelation—to unleash wisdom and Knowledge that humanity desperately needs now to prepare for a future that will be unlike the past. The blessings are with you. The power of redemption is within you, in Knowledge within you." [27]

"God loves humanity. God is not angry with humanity. God knows exactly what humanity is prone to do under difficult circumstances, so God provides what is necessary to guide the human family, without taking from you your own responsibility as an individual, as a citizen and as a member of a group or a nation." [21]

“All the seeming power of your world, the forces of nature, the inevitability of your death, the ever-present threat of illness and loss and destruction, and all appearances of conflict are all temporary movements in the great stillness of God.” [28]

The new God

Messier 30

"Here the New God is the old God, unveiled and clarified, not clothed in ancient understandings or ancient mythologies. For there is only one God, and that is the God of all the universes." [29]

“Do you see? The Greater Community will change your ideas about God completely. It will change your ideas about religion completely. You will see that God is not preoccupied with humans. You will see that God is something bigger than what you have ever considered, and you will have to think as a participant in a Greater Reality. This is a great blessing.” [3]

"God did not invent your ideas and beliefs. God did not create your preferences and your fears. God did not create the world that is a product of everyone’s preferences and fears. You cannot blame God for the social conditions of humanity. You cannot blame God for wars and cruelty, exploitation, slavery and poverty. That is all a human creation based upon greed and ignorance, based upon not enough people contributing enough to the world around them. But God did create the presence of Knowledge within you, and only God’s New Revelation makes this very clear, without an overlay of history and human interpretation to cloud your understanding. The stream is clear. The Message is pure. You are receiving it from its Source, instead of an interpretation that was made centuries later for human consumption." [30]

Belief in God

“The attempt to define God is the attempt to make God concrete. This is an attempt to make God fit in with your ideas.” [16]

"Believing in God may be preliminary to knowing God, but believing and knowing are not the same. Many people claim they believe in God, either because they believe or because they are afraid not to believe. However, to know God is to come into relationship with God." [31]

"It is the Greater Power of Knowledge—the mystery, the evidence of things unseen—that must be the focus of your faith, that must be the heart of your religion, that must be the source of your encouragement, your wisdom and your guidance." [32]

“God is only interested in re-establishing communication with you. That is all that matters because that is the universe. What can you hope to accomplish here without that? Your span of years is quite brief. Your environment is far more powerful than you are, or seemingly so. There are countless adversities to undermine your progress. There must be something else. This then is where your trust must be directed.” [13]

Other quotes about God

“God has given this world everything it needs. Now it must use what has been given. God has given this world purpose. God has given this world evolution. God has given this world spiritual assistance of tremendous magnitude. God has planted purpose within you. God has given you life. God has given you Knowledge so that you may fulfill your part in this world at this time.” [33]

“God does not discriminate. God is not delighted with the religious and angry with the unreligious. God has placed the saving Grace within each person. The real purpose of religion is to bring people to this saving Grace. Religion in all of its forms is intended to do this. Even though religion has taken on other manifestations and assumed other purposes and in many cases has been adopted by political forces, this is its fundamental purpose—to bring you to Knowledge, to bring you to this deeper guiding intelligence that the Creator of all life has placed within you and within each person as a potential.” [34]

“God is speaking to everybody—even those who do not believe what you believe, even those who do not adhere to your religion, those of other countries and tribes and groups who might live very differently from you and have different social customs and values. God is speaking to them. God does not only speak to the people of one faith tradition, as if they were the chosen people, as if they were God’s favorite because God does not function at the level of ideas. God is not a super intellect because God exists beyond the physical reality, and beyond the physical reality you do not need ideas in the way that you think of them now. Ideas are related to form, to people, places and things and to the interpretation of events, which are people, places and things. God lives beyond this reality.” [35]

Metaphors

"God is like the air. Everyone breathes the air, but few pay any attention to it. Everyone is sustained every moment with every breath. Their bodies depend upon each breath in order to live in the next moment. Cut off this supply of air and the person dies quickly and everything comes to an end. God is like that—so pervasive, so present, so supportive and so nourishing." [31]

"But God exists beyond all of this—the real God, the pure God that has been shining like the sun upon you. Regardless of the clouds in the sky, regardless of the pollution in the atmosphere and the turbulence on the ground, God is like the sun shining upon you. But God is beyond the sun, beyond any definition that you can make. Beyond your histories, beyond the great teachers and the great Messengers from God, beyond the great spiritual books and testimonies, there is God the Creator and the Author of your life and existence." [2]
